Pub chain JD Wetherspoon has applied for planning permission to open a branch in St Ives.
The company has submitted its plans for a new pub and restaurant in Market Hill, in the shop formerly occupied by Warehouse Clearance.
Its application for change of use, from retail to a public house, includes the creation of a beer garden.
A statement explaining the proposals, published by Huntingdonshire District Council this week, says: “The proposed scheme has been designed to complement the economy of the town and maintain the commercial viability of this building with a general refurbishment and extensions, which will add interest and variety to the Conservation Area.”
Its planned changes include sliding entrance doors at the front “to replace the uninspiring glazed shopfront and provide a contemporary appearance which will add interest to the street scene”.
Inside, the bar and food area will be on the ground floor, which will be extended, with toilets upstairs, as well as a kitchen.
